I was 19 at the time, and I was managing a toy store at a local mall. I decided to take 2 years off between HS & college to "screw around". I had to be up at 6am to get my coffee, shower, all that jazz. I didn't see the planes hit live, but I did see the first building fall live, then I went to work. They shut down the mall, and started transporting everyone out of Chicago that didn't live there. My buddy called, who was still in HS at the time, I went to his house, we watched replays all day, drank beers and smoked cigs. It was really bizarre, none of us were really upset, probably because we were all in denial at the time. As much as I hate slogans like, "We will never forget" stuff like that really sticks with you. My memories that day are very vivid. The only other day I have that is so clear is when the Challenger blew up back in 86 I believe.
S.I. appeals to younger people a lot more than FC does. I think FC is brilliant, captivating, and imaginative. S.I., in a sense, is Skrull Kill Krew on a much larger stage. I enjoy both, but FC has me sucked in.
